performance: losing 1.6 lb a week
I've been trying to lose weight my whole life, it seems. Now I have 2 kids and am at the heaviest I have ever been. I have frequent aches and pains in my back and feet. I have only recently attributed them to my weight. I had my husband take pictures of me as per The 4 Hour Body recommendation, and I was disgusted by what I saw. I had not looked at myself in this way ever. Those pictures are now on my fridge, as a deterrent against bad behavior and so that hopefully I can look back and see how far I have come.
It was those pictures that really woke me up. I have to do something. Chad Fowler is quoted in the book as saying "Stop wishing and start doing." That sentence reached me. Because doing nothing but wallow in self loathing is getting me nowhere. I HAVE to do something.
I have a tentative weight goal of 160 pounds, which is still considered overweight for my height. But I am more interested in feeling comfortable in my own skin. For the first time.
